Second Strike


Apparently, all the man identified as Gholam Ghaus Z wanted was to buy an electric razor. But the German man of Afghan origin tried to do it in store in a military base near Kabul. American authorities arrested him and have held him for four months although intensive investigations have uncovered no ties to terrorists. German authorities have urged the man's release, but they fear his case could follow the pattern of Murat Kurnaz, a German resident of Turkish origin the Americans held for five years despite finding by both countries he had no ties to terrorism.
